Far from Earth, tensions escalate between a feuding astronaut couple (Gnosis and ZanFagna). A video transmission from John Cameron Mitchell pushes them toward escaping the ship-- and each other.

An anthem for those looking to flee the nation and their toxic relationships-- "Nation of One" is the ultimate breakup song. The video was created almost entirely with miniatures, a green screen, and no budget by co-directors Gnosis and Matthew ZanFagna.

"Nation of One" is written by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask (creators of Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and will be found on part two of the benefit album "New American Dream" by John Cameron Mitchell and Friends.
